Coordinator Lynne Freeman Opens in new window

Description Customer experiences occur when there is interaction between a company and their customers for the duration of their relationship. It comprises the customer journey, the consumer-brand 'touchpoints' and the environment in which these experiences happen. Increasing digitisation of the organisation-customer interface has resulted in a shift of buyer expectations where it is easier to compare market offerings and where communication is no longer a one way interaction. This unit considers the complexity of the technology driven relationship where customers become co-creators of their own personalized experiences and how companies can be part of this.
